Pokkel is right. You will have to see whether you miss a period before doing a pregnancy test.

Your chances are not so good to be pregnant. Your fertile period was around the 28th of November. So any time between 25 to 30 th November would have given you a big chance of conceiving. After your fertile period, there is no egg to fertilize....

It depends whether you had sex in your fertile period which is usually 14 days after your period (I think). So having sex does not necessarily mean that you will be pregnant but when you had sex in your fertile period your chances are better.
